Notes:

Centres were asked whether they provide pre-school education "following the Scottish 3-18 Curriculum for Excellence". Those that said yes were asked whether this was "as a local authority managed school or centre", "as a partner provider offering places funded by the local authority" or "neither".

Teachers are counted once for each centre they work for, so the number of �eripatetic/shared teachers contains some multiple-counting. However, each centre calculates the teacher's WTE as the time they spend working in that centre, so WTE should not be affected by the multiple-counting.

96 centres did not provide information on the number of teachers. For these centres, the information used in 2009 has been carried forward. Slightly more centres did not provide information on the WTE of staff. For these centres, the same principle has been applied.

Teacher numbers are rounded to the nearest 10 and WTEs to the nearest whole number to express the uncertainty inherent in these estimates. For this reason, totals may not exactly equal the sum of their parts.
